Re: Block detection/wheel set resistors
Surface mounted resistors are available from many different sources, i.e. Digikey, Mouser, and any of the other electronic supply companies. You can even purchase them on eBay.
The glue that I use is a cheap super glue that I get from Harbor freight.
According to the BXP88 manual you should be using a 22K.
There is resistance paint so I have been told. I never used that stuff myself.

Where do i get surface mounted resistor?
What size? I Use digitrax bxp88’s for detection.
They are small enough to sit on an “n” scale axil and rotate with the wheel without Interfering with its rotation?
I thought the paint itself was the resistance?
